Neat, tight, and easy-handling, the Vision Trimax T42 Wheelset consists of semi-aero mid-section wheels from FSA for 2011. While the 42mm section rim does not cut up the wind and deeper sets, it is less prone to be blustered in windier conditions.

While it weighs 1.7kg/pr, which is average, these wheels climb better than deeper wheels do and they also light up effortlessly under power. This is because there is less in the rims. Very tight and precise overall feel and consistent braking are achieved through the hand-built straight-pull bladed spoke build.

When it comes to bike suitability, course profile, and wind conditions, the 2011 FSA Vision Trimax T42 Wheelset has better versatility as compared to most deeper section wheels. Other excellent features are long-term smoothness, high quality quick-release, and tire covers.

Depending on the shock bolt size of the frame, the angle alteration allowed by the Burgtec hardware ranges from 1 to 1.5 degrees. Obviously, 6mm frames will have the highest amount of alteration while the 8mm frames will get the least.
